GDT at 'All About Magnolia Challenge Blog'

Howdy all!!!

How are you guys today? I am super super excited!!!! This is my first post as one of the GDT at All About Magnolia Challenge Blog ! did I mention I am SUPER excited!!!! #happydancing!!!

So this is the midway reminder for the challenge which is a super fun one - 'Sparkle' ooohhh you could go wild with this couldnt you!!!! So hop across and see what the fabulous gang at All About Magnolia Challenge Blog have been up too and why not enter?!

So for this card I used 3 Tilda images from the Santa Lucia collection, the Tilda on the end with candles, well she was my holy grail of stamps.....searched everywhere and finally found her!!! So I masked these 3 ladies together and coloured them with Distress Inks.

Now the papers are from Maja Design 'Vintage Frost Basics' and I thought I would challenge myself with doing a pink Christmas card as most of mine are traditional.  On the images I used Fran-tage on all of their handbands- Shabby Pink, Shabby Blue and Shabby white. On the band of Tilda in the middles dress I used some Stampendous Crushed Glass fragments in silver. I NEED more of this stuff!!! Tilda with the star, for the star I used gold Stickles. Tilda on the end, I added clear glitter to her candles, although hasnt showed up well in this pic. I added the gorgeous 'Shaved Ice' at the foot of the image, love how this twinkles.

The dies are a mix of Magnolia, Noor! Design, Sizzix and Memory box. On all of these I added 'Shabby White' fran-tage to these to make them really sparkle.

The number are cut on some corrugated brown card with a Sizzix die and covered in Distress Ink Crackle Paint in 'Antique Bronze'. As this was drying I sprinkled some red micro beads on top.

Around the image I wrapped some cheesecloth, kinda makes them angelic I think.

To add some final sparkle I used moonstone brads from Wild Orchid Crafts. I love these brads.

On the inside I used a Magnolia die for the sign and it reads 'Christmas Blessings'.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges-
